25 Mar Get fruity with springtime cocktails
Ah, springtime. There’s really nothing we like better than to enjoy a cocktail or two, al fresco, at this time of year. The birds are singing, there is blossom on the trees and you can start to feel the warmth of the sun.
With the clocks going forward this coming weekend, we have the lighter nights to look forward to. Everything is revving up for summer and so should your cocktail choices.
For spring cocktails, think fruit, flowers and herbs. Here’s three for you to try:
Super-refreshing with Tequila, Cointreau and grapefruit juice. The colour of this cocktail totally says spring! Get the full recipe from Imbibe.
Lemon basil martini
The spicy flavour of basil adds an extra zing to this martini. Fresh and zesty like a sunny spring day. You’ll need vodka, lemon juice, basil and simple syrup. Full details at Foodviva.
There’s one fruit that really gets thinking about the warmer weather to come and that’s the strawberry. This cocktail is light and refreshing. Great for chilling in the garden. Round up the mint, strawberries, rum and lime for this one, courtesy of drinkandcocktailrecipes.com
